Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner
FTC, Full Time
Do you have a clear vision for tackling modern slavery in the UK?
It’s a sad fact that around the world today, millions of men, women and children are cruelly enslaved and exploited. However this is not something that just happens overseas, it is happening here and now across cities, towns and villages in the UK.
The Government is committed to tackling this abhorrent crime, building on the UK’s strong track record in supporting victims and pursuing and punishing the perpetrators. The Modern Slavery Act 2015 established the Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner (IASC) to drive up the strategic response by Governments and its partners to tackle modern slavery in the UK and overseas.
We are looking for an outstanding candidate to take up the post of Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner. You will have a track record of strategic leadership, a clear vision for the role, and will be able to engage people from across a range of backgrounds and viewpoints.
You will work across the UK, and internationally, with law enforcement, the criminal justice system, the public and private sector, NGOs and civil society, and directly with victims, to help build an evidence base so we can better target our collective activity to stamp out this vile crime for good.
Knowledge and experience of building relationships with a diverse range of stakeholders, including law enforcement bodies, both nationally and internationally, and the capability to conduct challenging conversations will be essential. You will also have knowledge and experience of working with victims, including an understanding of the vulnerabilities and challenges faced by victims and the support they should receive.
This will be a three year fixed term appointment as an office holder with the possibility of re-appointment.
